Albanian NGO sues government on CIA kidnap claim

Khaled el-Masri, a German citizen of Lebanese descent, says he was abducted in December 2003 at the Serbian-Macedonian border, then flown by the CIA to a detention center in Kabul, Afghanistan, where he was interrogated and abused.
El-Masri says he was released in Albania in May, 2004, and that his captors told him he had been seized in a case of mistaken identity.
The Center for Development and Democratization of Institutions said it had filed two suits at a court in Tirana, Albania’s capital, demanding the Interior and Defense Ministries provide details on how el-Masri was brought to Albania.
The lawsuits have never before been publicly revealed.
The group filed the suits after the ministries refused to respond to freedom of information requests for documents related to the case.
“We can’t accept that people, whoever they may be, can be treated in Albania like this man was,” the center’s head, Ilir Aliaj, told The Associated Press.
After landing at an Albanian military airport, El-Masri was driven for several hours through the mountains of Albania, according to a report by the Council of Europe, an international organization that promotes human rights. He was later put on a flight to Frankfurt, Germany.
Human rights campaigners have used el-Masri’s story to press the United States to stop flying terrorism suspects to countries where they could face abuse – a practice known as “extraordinary rendition.”
